I initially trained in EMDR in London in 2005 with Dr Gerald Puk, a renowned trainer and therapist who was involved at the beginning of EMDR with Francine Shapiro.
I began to integrate it into my therapy practice immediately and saw such amazing results that I wanted to go further.
It was then I decided to work towards my accreditation. I was lucky enough to have a superb consultant who guided me through the joys and terrors of my early practice. `It was through the generous sharing of her wisdom and knowledge that I began to appreciate the true value of supervision in helping us to develop into the best practitioner we can be.
I have been an EMDR consultant since 2016 and have supervised many people both individually and in groups since that point and EMDR supervision is something I feel strongly about.
I have supervised people in a range of settings, including privately and for the NHS in primary, secondary and tertiary care. I have worked with psychological therapists, CPNs and psychologists in services including psychosis, eating disorders, older people, IAPT, CMHT and individuals private practice, amongst others.
I work with new trainees, people who are going for practitioner accreditation, reaccreditation and consultant status.
I have delivered training to NHS services, including a recent ‘refresher’ on the 8 Phases of the protocol, which received very positive feedback.
I keep up to date on research and training and enjoy passing on the latest developments to supervisees.
I have an interest in complex trauma and dissociation and recently completed a comprehensive CPD with Kathy Steele, one of the developers of structural dissociation.
I follow the Ethical guidelines of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) The British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) and am a member of the EMDR Association UK & Ireland.
